Resist the ResistanceAct now. Act how?Strategy to prevent catastropheSurveil. SurvivePolicy for Purpose
Act now. Act how?

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared that "antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the top 10 global health threats facing humanity.”1


WHO urges that we all take immediate steps towards judicious use of antimicrobials.1 We agree.

In line with WHO principles, Pfizer’s PRESERVE strategy supports innovation and encourages sustainable, responsible use of and access to antimicrobials. We live these stewardship practices every day, so we can accelerate real change against resistance.

Our approach is based on 8 core pillars, each with its own targets and objectives.

              PILLAR            GOAL     
POLICY Reward innovation,working towards a sustainable business model
PREVENTION Vaccinate and promote infection prevention practices
EDUCATION Raise awareness and ensure the responsible use of anti-infectives and vaccines
SURVEILLANCE Measure and share AMR data to inform and support stewardship actions
EQUITY Strengthen health systems to deliver quality care and improve patient access to medicines and vaccines
RESEARCH Generate and communicate new antimicrobial resistance and/or stewardship-related data
VALUE & ACCESS Share information about the value of antimicrobials, vaccines, and stewardship
PATIENT ENGAGEMENT Inform and mobilize an engaged patient community

For advocates of antimicrobial stewardship, diagnostic tools are critical.2,3

Diagnostic testing is essential to ensure patients receive the appropriate therapy earlier.

Using diagnostic tools reduces pathogen transmission, as people are infected for shorter

lengths of time, and supports good antimicrobial stewardship.2,3

Antimicrobial susceptibility testing can determine if an infection is likely to respond to a

particular antimicrobial therapy, and can lead to a more targeted treatment.3,4

Ordering the right tests for the right patient at the right time requires effective communication

and multidisciplinary collaboration.5 We must share diagnostic knowledge and expertise to get

closer to our goal: curb the threat of drug-resistant infections.
